How This CEO Redesigned Her Fab LA Bungalow in One Week

Beatrice Fischel-Bock, CEO of Hutch, may have founded an interior design app, but she still faces the same design dilemmas we mortals do. Recently, the CEO (and 2018 Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree) wanted to revamp her Spanish-style LA bungalow but didn’t have a lot of time to do it. So she turned to the app she cofounded, which combines 3D technology and online shopping, to virtually redecorate her home. And in just about one week (yes, you read that right), her place had a fresh new look that was clean and elevated. Scroll through to check out her very quick, and very stylish, home makeover.


Fischel-Bock wanted a design that complemented her Cali-inspired home. “My goal was to create a space where I could relax and unwind,” the CEO says. She began by uploading a picture of each room to the app. Then she applied the Hutch filters to get inspired, as well as mix and match different styles and products until she had virtually assembled a room that fit her vision.

For her bedroom, Fischel-Bock wanted high style that didn’t skimp on comfort. Using the Petite Boudoir Bedroom style as her guide, she incorporated neutral linens, textured elements, and interesting accents. And the focal point of the room — the fab wall art collection — can be credited to both the app and her family heirlooms. “I’ve picked up art throughout the years from my travels and visiting local flea markets. My mom is an artist, so some personal pieces of hers are mixed in as well. I used Hutch to find the newer art, and mixed and matched styles and mediums to give the wall a collected feel,” she says.

For the communal space, the Collected Feminine Living Room style helped Fischel-Bock create an area that was both pretty and put-together. Working with patterned pillows, throws, and accent decor, she was able to dress up her seating arrangements and surfaces. Next, she scattered books, plants, and frames around the room as small statement pieces. The final item, a textured woven rug, made the entire ensemble feel curated, but totally livable.

Thanks to her app’s swipe, shop, and filter functionalities, Fischel-Bock’s light and airy home came to life in just a couple of days. We call that major motivation to download Hutch (free on iOS) STAT.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
